Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne: I nearly died after seizure

Lil Wayne nearly died following his latest seizure.

The 'Lollipop' hitmaker has confirmed he is epileptic and says his recent bout of attacks earlier this month nearly finished him off after his heart rate decreased to ''30 per cent''.

Speaking to radio station Power 106, he said: ''[I'm] prone to seizures. This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures, ya'll just never hear about them.

''But this time it got real bad 'cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 per cent. Basically, I could've died.''

Earlier this month, Wayne spent six days at California's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's intensive care unit (ICU), where he was treated after suffering his latest seizure.

He was later released from the medical facility and Wayne's close friend, Young Money president Mack Maine, took to Twitter to share the good news with his followers

He wrote: ''Thanks to Cedar Sinai for everything!!! @LilTunechi has been officially been released and is headed home....God is great (sic)''.

And Cash Money CEO Birdman added: ''God Bless.my son just release frm hospital.thanks 4 all tha luv.YMCMB.Richgang (sic)''
